Microsoft recently confirmed that upcoming Lumia Windows Phone smartphones will ditch their “Nokia” branding and be tattooed with Microsoft’s logo instead. The folks in Redmond gave us a quick tease of that branding and said that the first device will be revealed “soon.” It looks like that is indeed the case, but the reveal may have come sooner than Microsoft would’ve liked.
Chinese certification agency TENAA has added a Windows Phone device with the model number RM-1090 to its database. The phone features Microsoft branding on both its front and rear that looks just like the branding that Microsoft teased last month. And yes, Nokia’s name is absent from the phone, with Microsoft’s brand appearing in Nokia’s place.
Spec details on the RM-1090 are still light, but it’s said that the Windows Phone device will sport dual SIM support, GSM and HSPA connectivity and a qHD resolution at 960x540. Those aren’t the most impressive specs ever, but this phone will still likely garner a lot of attention when it launches thanks to its Microsoft branding.
